2019 Men's Attitude Survey

Edmonton, AB. – The Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters (ACWS) released its third Men’s Attitude Survey, conducted by Leger Research.  

The survey shows a rise in the general understanding by men of gender equity. The survey shows that 26% of men have a high gender equity score, as compared to 18% when the first survey was conducted in 2012.

92% of men believe that violence against women and girls is a concern to them.  While many men have witnessed harassment of women just over two-thirds checked to see if the victim was okay, 56% challenged the man engaged in harassment and just 14% reported the incident to the police.
